This was the first day of  my 16 weeks marathon training. I am doing the RLRF training again with possibly a few tweeks. I will be comparing each these training runs to last years training for comparison.

Todays run was good considering I just finished a cycling time trial on Saturday. Avg. time was 3 sec. less and HR was 4 bpm less.

Frustrated...4 miles @ 8:07 pace.

Proverbs 16:4

The Lord has made everything [to accommodate itself and contribute] to its own end and His own purpose—even the wicked [are fitted for their role] for the day of calamity and evil.

First of all, this probably be my last post for about 10 days. We are going on a cruise and won't be back until Nov. 18th...... Yeah!!! I will probably be doing all of my runs on a TM on the ship :-(

This was the second training run in my 16 week marathon training. Today was a tempo run. It was supposed to be 2 warm-up, 2 tempo @ 6:45 and 2 cool-down but I decided before I started to run 3 tempo @ 6:45 knowing that would be a very achievable goal. My plan is to push the limits of this training session to try and have some cushion for my race goal. Last year, when I did this same training, I hit and exceeded almost all of the training paces and distances but fell well short of the 3:15 predicted marathon time. I'm not expecting a 3:15 marathon this time but would like to break the 3:20 mark.

As I was running the tempo miles today I was wondering why 6:26 (5K pace) was so much harder than this 6:45 pace :-)

Decided to run 3 instead of 2 to make it a full Small Loop. Broke the warm-up and cool-down up a litte to have the best part of the loop for the 3 mile tempo.

Matthew 8:23-26

23-25 Then he got in the boat, his disciples with him. The next thing they knew, they were in a severe storm. Waves were crashing into the boat—and he was sound asleep! They roused him, pleading, “Master, save us! We’re going down!”

26 Jesus reprimanded them. “Why are you such cowards, such faint-hearts?” Then he stood up and told the wind to be silent, the sea to quiet down: “Silence!” The sea became smooth as glass.
